Challenging white supremacy is not racism
Challenging patriarchy is not sexism
Challenging disproportionate distribution of wealth is not classism
CHALLENGING YOUR OPPRESSOR DOES NOT MAKE YOU “JUST AS BAD”
This is cute as fuck and describes pretty accurately how I feel too.
This comic is included Anything that Loves edited by Zan Christensen.
aside from this comic being really cute and honest, it also points out this really huge glaring problem in the gay community in relation to trans-men.
in my experience with a lot of gay men, they have this extremely purist view when it comes to what being a “real man” is, which is bad enough when you have different gay subcultures (bears, gymrats, etc) who have different specific definitions of what a “real man” is.
however for the most part, many gay men seem to agree upon a point of leaving trans-men not only out of their gender, but out of their sexuality as well and I have a real fucking problem with that.
i’m pretty open about things that relate to my sexuality, and i myself identify more or less as a homosexual, but i’ve found the worst part in the gay community is dealing with this bullshit. eventually i found that i at least have the luxury of telling guys to fuck off if i don’t meet their standards, but i know that’s a lot harder for folk when they seem to have the entire population of homosexuals more or less invalidating not only their gender, but their orientation as well.
with all of that said, i just ask this. if you happen to be a cisgender homosexual, like myself, don’t tell other gay men that they aren’t actually gay if they’re dating or have had relations with a trans-man because that’s a load of fucking bullshit.
more important, under any circumstance do not tell a trans-man they’re not a man or that they aren’t allowed to like other men who are homosexual, be they cis or trans.
that’s all i really wanted to say.

go fuck yourself, you
"all opinions are valid" only applies to subjective shit like ice cream flavours, when it come to whether or not certain types of people are allowed to live safe and comfortable lives, I’d say objectivity was pretty fucking important.

Cis people who think cis as a term is oppressive to them are so laughable like that’s like someone calling your arm an arm and you’re like “is this some tumblr social justice bullshit”
destroy the idea that clothing has gender
